Rampage


Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals. As these newly created alpha predators tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

PROJECT DETAILS
  • Filming in Atlanta. (5/2/17)
  • Dwayne Johnson spoke a bit about his character recently, saying: "I head up an anti poaching unit out of Rwanda. My best friend is a rare albino gorilla named George. Very bad people infect George, an alligator and a wolf with a serum. All three animals grow at an unprecedented rate. Their size, speed, agility and violent aggression is off the charts. They go on a deadly rampage and want to destroy the world. George not happy. Me not happy. When animals like you, they lick you. When they don't like you, they kill you. I will hunt down the bad people who did this to my best friend. And when I find them, I will not lick them." (5/2/17)
  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Negan on AMC's The Walking Dead) plays "Agent Russell, who works for a covert government division called OGA."
  • Malin Akerman is in negotiations to play the movie's villainess, "a calculating head of a tech company that is behind the monsters."
  • P.J. Byrne plays a scientist.
  • Dwayne Johnson plays a zoologist.
  • Directed by Brad Peyton (San Andreas, Incarnate).
  • Based on the 80's arcade game with the same name.
